Back of Thigh Roll

- Sit on your mat with the roller under your hamstrings, right above the knee joint. Place your hands on the mat behind you, with fingertips slightly turned out. Press your hands into the mat to lift your bottom off the floor, and engage your core.
- Keep your shoulders back and inhale as you roll the roller up the back of your thighs.
- Exhale as you roll back down to the starting position.
Repeat this movement 8 to 10 times.
